Great workplace, amazing people of different cultures!
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 20 August 2018
McGill University is a great place to work! However, in many departments there tends to be poor management. I had the good fortune of being part of several years of an excellent senior administration, but left at a time when that all changed when a new administration was mandated and began breaking down the wonderful dynamics created by their predecessors. It was sad to see how a workplace so positive, and unbroken, can change to become a more hostile and negative work place. Unfortunately it takes several years for the board to be aware of the unqualified people they've placed in charge of these units, and good employees leave before something is done to improve or eliminate these individuals. But I had several great years there, and I will always remember those.
Many to mention, but summer Fridays, less than 30-hour work week, decent salary and great benefits
Lots of politics and bureaucracy to manage
